NORWICH – The Norwich Police Department has made yet another surprising arrest within the city, only days after charging a man with murder in an unrelated crime. Fourteen-year-old Ty A. Tumminia, Norwich, has been charged with second-degree attempted murder. While police initially declined to identify the boy, his name was released by Chenango County Court early this morning; Tumminia will be tried as an adult.
“Police initially responded to a 9-1-1 call Sunday and once there they discovered an adult female unconscious. While attending to the female’s injuries, the 14-year-old male left the residence, taking a car parked in the driveway,” said Norwich Police Chief Joseph Angelino. Police said the victim did live with her attacker in a south-side city residence, but declined to confirm their relationship.
